San Antonio city councilman Manny Pelaez from district 8 announced on Tuesday, Jan. 19, that he does not support the “Fix SAPD” petition. The petition seeks to abolish the SA Police Officers Association agreement with the City and undermine police employment and health benefits.
Abolishing the agreement would undermine the police's morale and make them vulnerable to instant dismissals, even for political reasons, without an appeal. Furthermore, if there is any group of public servants that needs good benefits, it’s the ones who put their lives on the line daily.
San Antonio citizens need to wake up and stop the "Black Lives Matter" radicals and their agenda to undermine public safety and defund the police. Operating under the name "Fix SAPD," the leftist Marxist BLM is circulating a petition to "hold police officers accountable." They are also running well-financed candidates for the city council to push the City government further left.
Pharaoh Clark is the most visible and vocal pro-Black Lives Matter/Fix SAPD candidate in D-2. However, virtually ALL of the Democrat candidates support the Black Lives Matter/Fix SAPD agenda.
San Antonio voters need to wake up and stop these leftists, or the City will resemble Portland, Austin, or Chicago.
Two years ago, several George Soros-backed district attorneys were elected throughout the U.S. and began implementing liberal/leftist policies that undermine public safety and endanger citizens. Two examples are in Los Angeles and San Antonio, where the county district attorneys fail to prosecute criminals fully.
Citizens need to wake up and push back before their communities become as crime-ridden as New York or Portland.
In Los Angeles, George Gascon is the new district attorney implementing some new guidelines to decriminalize minor crimes. He says it will save money, create less recidivism, and lower the crime rates.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday, Dec. 30, that 6,700 fans will be allowed inside Buffalo Bills Stadium to attend the Bills’ first NFL home playoff game since Dec. 28, 1996. While Cuomo shuts down restaurants, bars, and other small businesses, he is willing to “work with” the NFL and the Bills to allow fans to attend a game.
Cuomo claims this is New York’s first step in a first-in-the-nation pilot program to “re-open businesses safely” during COVID-19. Again, it’s ironic the Governor is willing to work with the NFL and the Bills on a safe solution, but not with small businesses.
The two most significant issues for San Antonio voters in the city election in May 2021 will be the Left's efforts to defund and punish the police and the city's efforts to limit the citizens' First Amendment rights in the name of COVID-19 public safety.
The radical leftist wants to abolish local police, create doubts in law enforcement and the judicial system, and undermine the United States' Constitution. They want to remove police officers from civil service.
